Between Rock & An Unobserved Place
"In the early summer of 1999 David, Jonas, Mats and Simon got a key to a room in an old candy factory in Nynäshamn. In this factory there were some instruments. They took some deep breaths of dust (asbestos, concrete & other stuff) and started to play..."

A few name & lineup changes later, Sickoakes in 2003 is making some of the finest, seriously-amped-up rock minimalism around. In this three part epic, Wedding Rings & Bullets In The Same Golden Shrine, the ensemble scours a landscape of lonely radio tunings, glacial woodwind & brass harmonies, all resolved in stunning fashion by overdriven delayed guitars pegged to a frenetic drumming. Whatever was vague and unknowable in the first two movements gives way to an unmistakable fury and clarity in this powerful 15 minute piece.

Sickoakes is from NynÃshamn, Sweden. :: More information is available at http://medlem.spray.se/sickoakes/

Subject: This must be one of the greatest songs ever made
Sickoakes has really done it this time, competing with GY!BE(!), the greatest post-rock band ever.

Subject: wonderful
this is a simply beautiful piece of work; sublime, moving, ethereal. I was truly disappointed that it stopped after 15 minutes -- i kept wanting more.

amen to netlabels

Subject: simply amazing
i sit here in total awe listening to this beautiful track. This is a prime example of how netlabel music can be just as professional as anything out there. This track could very well battle it out with Godspeed ! You black Emperor. I'm totally petrified by this track ! EPIC!

Subject: so much neat and amazingly played
we definitely need more stuff like this. the track is a beautiful story, which reminded me of some cyber-electro pieces a la controlled bleeding or more ambientrock stuff like sigur ros. an excellent exploration of contaminated sounds and passion.
